BOOK REVIEW: Coming home to Kansas after years of being away, Macey Steigel finds her inner self begin to unravel. She came simply to bury her father, then return immediately to her big-city career. The past would have to remain where it was--behind her, deeply buried. But once she arrives again at the old farmhouse, a roiling current of memories carries her back to the reasons she left in the first place.
MY REVIEW: Macey Steigel is an anchor woman in Dallas. She is thirty seconds away from going on the air when she is told that her father has died. She had left home seventeen years ago after having a fight with her father, and had yet to reconcile with him. She finally decides to return to Kansas for a few days to attend the funeral. But when she gets there, things keep coming up that keep her longer. But she has a ghost in her past, and it keeps coming back to haunt her. What is this ghost, how will she reconcile with it, and who will help her?
This was the first Rene Gutteridge book I read, and I liked it. I don't know what I was expecting, but this was different, in a good way.
